Experience the unspoilt land and memorable wildlife of the Hebrides from Mull to the Uists

The unspoilt nature of the Inner and Outer Hebridean Islands offers some unique wildlife-watching experiences and this week-long self-drive holiday offers you the chance to enjoy Scottish wildlife in a beautiful, natural island environment.

You will spend three nights on the beautiful island of Mull, where you’ll have the chance to get closer to see eagles, otters, seals, minke whales and other native wildlife, with two trips included – a wildlife and whale-watching tour and a day’s wildlife safari.  You then travel on via the Isle of Skye to the Outer Hebrides and the Uists, where, once again in the company of an expert local guide, you will seek out otters and birds including a wide range of birds of prey and seabirds, and explore the flora of the “machair”, the seaside meadows.
